What can LCSI do for you?
Save you money
When we negotiate on your behalf, we draw on our extensive experience and
contacts within the meeting industry.We will secure the most favorable rates
with no compromise in quality. Even the smallest meetings can take advantage
of the economies of scale; our negotiating power comes from the large quantity
of business we bring to hotels, caterers, transportation services, entertainment
services, printers, A/V suppliers, and all of the other suppliers and services
fundamental to the success of your meeting.
When you retain LCSI, you only pay for services required. You don’t
have to worry about ongoing staffing costs or overhead; when the job is
done, the job is done - no recurring expenses or hassles associated with
employee withholdings, benefits, office space etc. We will assist you with
drafting a budget, and provide computerized financial management for your
meeting to ensure that you stay on budget. We will establish a separate
trust account and provide a fully audited statement for your meeting. We
can collect fees, hold money in escrow, and pay bills, all within your control.
Save you time
Why be overwhelmed by all of
the details of planning a conference? Conference planning can be an overwhelming
task: scheduling, budgeting, negotiating prices with vendors, managing
the details, working with committees, tracking attendance, reporting,
evaluating, and getting it all completed on time and within your budget!
That is where Lewis Conference Services International can be of assistance.
We take care of all the details so you can sit back and enjoy the conference!
Your staff has in-house commitments and LCSI realizes that. Therefore,
we will undertake a pre-conference site inspection for you in order to
inspect and select sites and transportation options, and negotiate on
your behalf for meeting services. This allows you and your staff to focus
your attentions on other important responsibilities. In many instances,
in-house staff is over-extended and could use assistance on a temporary
basis. As well as being costeffective and timesaving, LCSI will bring
new ideas to your in-house meeting department and provide a fresh perspective.
Planning a meeting is intricate and timeconsuming
- can you really take the time to do a first class job? Let LCSI take
the load off you and your staff.
Save you wasted effort and costly mistakes
Holding a meeting or conference is like accounting - if everything goes
smoothly, nobody notices...but, if there are problems, such as lost registrations
or airline reservations, speakers that don’t show up, rooms already
booked for another party etc, your reputation and business could suffer.
LCSI will assure flawless meetings and save you the worry of taking care
of all the details that guarantee a successful meeting.
Design the optimal meeting or seminar
We will help you with the conceptual phase of your meeting right through
to the published proceedings. We can assist in defining objectives, and
LCSI will design meetings that meet them. Given the demographics of your
attendees, we can advise you on venues that both minimize travel costs
and “work” within the objectives you are striving to achieve.
The written result of your meeting, whether simple minutes or elaborate,
full-color proceedings, is the final judge of the success of your meeting.
LCSI can take responsibility for all phases of the publishing process,
using modern desktop publishing techniques to keep costs down.
